Danny da Costa - Fighting genius, raving lunatic or harmless buffoon? Feel the power of his techniques and make up your own mind. He can be scary!
Danny has a unique approach to the grappling arts which make this DVD unlike anything else in the Fighting Films archives. It contains a feast of new and highly effective skills - inspired by Judo, Aikido, Tai Chi, Genghis Kahn and a passion for jelly babies.
A Judo 6th Dan and European silver medallist, Aikido 4th Dan, and boxing champion, Danny’s vast martial arts experience combines into a fighting style he calls Shinjido, or ‘Danny’s way’. In this DVD Danny shows Shinjido techniques devised for use in competitive Judo and self defence situations.
Danny is joined by his friends, 1981 World Champion and double Olympic silver medallist Neil Adams, who coaches a session on transference, and Barcelona Olympic Silver medallist Ray Stevens, who demonstrates some highly original Judo Newaza techniques.

"I never knew you could have so much fun on the mat."
